Peter J. Biging Receives Four ABA Appointments
Goldberg Segalla partner Peter J. Biging has received a number of American Bar Association (ABA) Tort, Trial & Insurance Section (TIPS) committee appointments for the upcoming ABA year (commencing in August). His appointments include appointments to the TIPS Section Conference Standing Committee, the ABA SCOPE Correlation and Standing Committee, and reappointment as the TIPS Liaison to the ABA Standing Committee on Lawyers’ Professional Liability. He is also rising to Editor in Chief of the ABA TIPS flagship magazine, The Brief.
“It is a privilege to receive these appointments from the American Bar Association,” said Peter. “The ABA does so much good both for the legal community and the public generally. I will look to use these opportunities to play my part in the ABA’s mission of educating, informing, and helping develop lawyers, and ensure the highest standards of legal practice.”
In his various standing committee appointments, Peter will assist in the planning of the upcoming section conference with the TIPS Section Conference Standing Committee. In his role as TIPS Liaison to the ABA Standing Committee on Lawyers’ Professional Liability, he will help the committee be a source of information on legal malpractice claim statistics, insurance for lawyers, and malpractice prevention tips for other attorneys. As a member of the ABA SCOPE Correlation and Standing Committee, Peter and the committee will study the structure and functions of ABA entities to make recommendations to the House of Delegates and or Board of Governors to help correlate the work of the association as a whole. While serving as Editor in Chief of The Brief, Peter will oversee the ABA’s flagship magazine for lawyers practicing tort and insurance law. The Brief facilitates these goals by exploring all aspects of tort and insurance law, including the many facets of trial practice essential to the legal profession. The magazine includes feature articles on more than 30 legal practice areas relative to tort and insurance law; “Practice Tips” that offer practical advice on practice and litigation matters; and columns and profiles about TIPS committees, programs, members, and events.
In previous appointments, Peter has also been chair of the TIPS Professional Liability Insurance Committee and the Media, Privacy & Advertising Law Committee. He has also been a frequent contributor to ABA publications and lectured at a number of ABA conferences.
